Explore on your own

Amongst the many activities that guests can enjoy on their own, we offer 2 self-guided tours:

1. Sustainability trail: you are given a map of the farm, corresponding to our marked spots all around the property. Follow the map and read the information to learn about our alternative energy, composting systems, local culture and agriculture, geography and climate agricultural techniques and plant life.

2. Lookout trail: follow the marked trail around our property. It will take you for a nice little hike up the surrounding forest hills and to a beautiful viewpoint. Don't forget to stop and read the Rio Muchacho information boards that we set up along the way!

Come explore as a day trip, or during your stay!
